  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

It is still possible to make a Sunday trip from
Llanberis to Betws-y-Coed on a through "S2" Sherpa

Alternatively Beddgelert and/or Porthmadog
(by changing Sherpa buses at Pen-y-Pass)
or a "clockwise morning trip" round Snowdon, including a short coffee break at Betws-y-Coed


Suggested timings are shown below and they can all be done for just 6.80 using a
"Red Rover"
(gives you maximum flexibility in case you want to change your plans en-route)
(Purchase ticket from the driver of your first bus)


This "unofficial" website attempts to show what services are available
It contains composite timetables of connecting services on a cross-Snowdonia route basis
where a change of bus is necessary --- hopefully it will help you plan your days out
It also includes some suggested "trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
You can click on any underlined location to go direct to the appropriate timetable
